with compliance departments and upstarts with energy and ideas. this status inequality demands our attention. last week's bipartisan passage of the unfunded mandate's transparency and information act is a good start, but much more must be done. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady's time has expired. the chair will receive message. the messenger: mr. speaker, a message from the president of the united states. the secretary: mr. speaker. the speaker pro tempore: mr. secretary. the secretary: i am directed by the president of the united states to deliver to the house of representatives a message in writing. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from minnesota seek recognition? for what purpose does the gentleman from south carolina eek recognition? without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. wilson: mr. speaker, transitioning from military to civilian life can be challenging for our veterans. the skill sets learned while serving in the armed forces are highly valued and confidence is extraordinary of veterans who have proven work ethic.

care reform, one of the authors of this bill, mr. waxman, the ranking member of energy and commerce, from california. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from california is recognized. mr. waxman: i thank the gentleman for yielding to me. the truth of the matter is no matter how many votes the republicans cast to repeal the affordable care act, and no matter how many distortions they spread about the law, there are some facts they cannot change. they cannot change the fact that because the affordable care act nobody in america can ever again be denied health insurance because they have a pre-existing condition. they cannot change the fact that a woman can never be charged more than a man for the same coverage. they cannot change the fact that a family will never again be left without coverage just because their child's hospital bills got too high. these facts are stubborn. they are inconvenient for my republican colleagues, so they ignore them and they deny them. republicans have voted or will today 50 times to try to take away the basic security and freedom guaranteed by the aff

-of-the-above energy strategy. it's part of our focus on the floor this week, in fact. because developing our own resources just doesn't bring jobs home, it strengthens america abroad. last month the energy and commerce committee released a report that says, and i'll quote, by becoming a natural gas exporter, the u.s. can you is plant the influence of other -- supplant the influence of other importers like russia and iran while strengthening our allies and trading partners around the world. the key word in that statement is can. we can is up plant russia's influence but -- supplant russia's influence but we won't as long as we have to contend with the energy department's achingly slow approval process. as we speak, the administration is sitting on 24 applications for natural gas exports, it's approved just six in the last three years. this amounts to a de facto ban that only emboldins vladimir putin, allowing him to sell large quanltities of natural gas to -- quantities of natural gas to our allies. the american people have seen the threat that putin puts forward. they know something must be done
the deficit. most important of all, it is about energy independence for our country. it is about working with canada and producing energy in this country so that we get our energy here locally rather than having to get it from the middle east. that is what americans want. they want us to be energy secure in this country. to do that, we need to produce more energy like we are doing in my state of north dakota and montana across the border. movepipeline would mode -- that loyal as well as canadian oil. it is about producing oil here, or getting it from our closest friend and neighbor, canada, rather than being dependent on the middle east. classification you to have to wait on a pipeline, how safe israel transportation of these products versus pipeline transportation? is it.that we are becoming more energy secure. it is great. it is jobs and what people want. to go with that energy, we need infrastructure. that infrastructure includes pipelines as well as moving products safely by train or truck. the keystone xl will take 500 trucks a day off rose in western north dakota. it is a safety is
bailout, and second, they don't control their own energy. they have to get energy from russia. they as well as europeans get russian energy, now, when you think about of what -- how can you solve ukraine. europe can't stand up to russia europe needs russian energy, i take a step back, say what happened in last week,ing in to ukraine, nobody is talking about that chinese have come out support of the russians are. and while putin was preparing this, i think he has prepared this for long time in middle of the olympics he left sochi, he went to moscow and met with egyptian defense minister, they sign an agreement saying that russia will replace united states as primary weapon supplier for egypt, that is a major strategic in middle east. because egypt and israel, have kept the peace for 40 years, not just what we're all focused on tragedy of ukraine, but a much bigger picture, where whose destiny is anyone controlling it should be a caution for united states don't get into debt, and absolutely make sure that your energy self much. much. lou: wore working on the latter, but we're so
of concerns that such sanctions would boost energy costs by enough to damage real economic activity. melissa: without question and to me it seems like, brian, the long-run move here is to develop even more natural gas we can export as lng or maybe we export our own technology and partner with people in europe to develop natural gas. the real power russia has is their natural resources. you think we can take that away from a market perspective? >> well you are concerned about higher energy prices especially the winter we just had. when i hear what judy said and former ambassador this would be prolonged. how will it impact my investments told to be overweight europe because europe is been improving but is a major risk to that investment thesis. you could see continued selling. wait until you see how it shakes out. don't be a hero today. melissa: what do you think about that, judy, as an arguement? developing more energy and helping the world to be more energy independent of hot spots? we don't need to just focus on middle east but energy independent of russia as well? >> absolutely. anyone inv
up energy production all over the countr country, fracking, you tell me, these five things, i would think the alternative party in the country could agree with? >> well, sean, to quote jerry mcguire, you had me at hello. >> i'm trying to get an answer. >> i completely agree. yes, yes, yes and yes. you're exactly right. but look, that is presenting a positive pro-growth vision. there is a better way. we can bring back economic growth and get people back to work but not continuing down the road of the obama economic policy which is hurting millions of american's all over this country. >> are you seriously considering, a lot of people banter your name out there, are you considering a run for the 2016 presidency? >> well, i appreciate the question. right now i'm trying to win the senate. i think republicans can take control of the senate in 2014. my view as a senator, as a voter, the person who i intend to vote for is whoever is standing up and leading, whoever is effectively leading. i hope everyone stepping up. i hope we have an abundance of riches. that would be a terrific outcome fo
and the guy that's supplying the energy for the united states? >> host: where did you read they pay for leasing of the land and taxes? >> caller: that's just on the internet. >> host: zachary goldfarb, the oil companies and gas company to pay taxes and they do have to pay the federal government to lease these lands. >> guest: that's right. the reason the government thinks is there is its multiple. first, the government belief these are public lands in many cases and some some of the benefits of that oil and gas should spread the people in those committees and around the country and not just into the pockets of the company. secondly, there is enforcement, environmental regulations in terms of government oversight when you do natural resource billing and exploration in the united states to protect in private, natural habitats and so forth. that needs to be paid for as well. i think the funds and licensing fees go to that support. >> host: freelancer on twitter, how much debt did bush leave? i read 11.5 trillion spent in eight years and the gop act like they have nothing to do with the
is blackmailing europe over energy. >> customers continue to say they need the pipeline. >> fossil fuel industry will always outspend everybody else. >> look at what is happening in ukraine. >> it's mainly about energy. >> great suggestions, one the keystone pipeline. >> marketplace continues to push to build the pipeline. >> i'm right when i talk about that inherent link between energy and security. >> i know that pipeline is necessary. >> america needs pipelines. >> good to have you with us. thanks for watching. we're getting into the say anything, do anything phase of the keystone xl pipeline. all the smart people saying we got to have it. we must not be very secure right now. if we don't build this pipeline, we're not going to be very secure. you see, conservatives what they're doing right now is that they are exploiting a foreign policy situation overseas to get something that they really want and they really don't know a whole hell of a lot about. they are shamelessly using the crisis in the ukraine to push for the keystone xl pipeline. i say not so fast. the conservative noise machine is
impact for ukraine. peter cook tells us how the ukraine is fueling the energy debate here in the states. ukraine. the latest on president obama says russian president vladimir putin has breached international law. the present spoke to reporters earlier today on the situation in crimea. thatere is a strong belief russia's actions is violating international law. president putin seems to think -- has a different set of lawyers making a different set of interpretations. that is fooling anybody. everybody recognizes that, although russia has legitimate interests in what happens in a neighboring state, that does not give them the right to use force as a means of inserting influence. said heresident also has not spoken to president putin since the weekend. let's get the latest on the --und rumble bloomberg ground from bloomberg. what is the latest in the standoff? much a tensel very standoff. there's is an air base down in crimea. it was taken over by russian forces over the weekend. this morning, ukrainian troops -- 300 of them -- marched back to that base and said they wanted it back. soldie

that with ed royce. i think we need to take the fact that america in 2020 will be the leading world energy producer, so let's talk about that being used to be an offset to the russians because their energy is their weapon. if we're looking to make russia a pariah state, that's where the president needs to be talking. >> listen, i think there's a lot to be said for that. as you know i'm more of a clean energy guy but taking that away from russia, their monopoly in energy, is good. but republicans are missing an opportunity to look more bipartisan. >> congressman engel, i think what bothers republicans is how much the president and the administration seems to have empowered putin over the past few years. just to give you a couple of examples. russia controls the northern distribution network which is one of the main access points in afghanistan that our troops rely on to get supplies and food and water. putin controls that. putin is controlling our syria chemical weapons collection deal, which is a farce. putin is undermining our negotiations in iran. have we given him too much power? why ha
since thanksgiving. is that because the street now sees tesla as an energy company, not just an electric car company? we have one guest who's going to make that case coming up. >> that story, bill, tesla, has been the story all week. now, here's how we stand in markets. what were you going to stay? >> i was going to say an analyst price forecast for that stock are all over the map. from the $200 range to the $60 range. >> pun intended. any who, here's where the dow stands. up to 16,245. meanwhile, as we mentioned off the top, the s&p 500 up about six points to just about 1851 at this hour. that's three points above its all-time closing high. >> all right, everybody. belly up. let's talk about this marketing in today's "closing bell" exchange. we have a lot of people, more who will be joining us. heather hughes just sitting down. how are you? >> good. >> greg ip from the economist. we have john doyle, jim lowell from adviser investments. we have steve liesman, rick santelli. it's a cast of thousands here. steve, i'm going to start with you. give us the hits and runs of janet yellen's test
an interesting note this morning, there's energy in the ukraine that could supplant the russians as far as being a supplier to western europe. there's a lot of things going on here. we'll hear more about it. this isn't going to go away. >> david molnar, you point out we're hovering around the fifth anniversary of the beginning of this bull market from the lows of march of '09. it's getting long in the tooth. is this market just running out of steam. is this a good excuse to sell today? >> yeah, bill, i think that's exactly what we're seeing here is that the market is a little bit extended, a little bit tired after a big run here off the january lows. we needed to see something come along that would create an impetus for consolidation, even a short-term correction, and this happens to be it right now. i agree with the prior two guests that this is probably going to be a short-term correction. it's not necessarily, you know, a change in trend here, but i would point out we do have friday's employment report coming out that's going to dictate a lot about, you know, the future direction of fed polic
. to the extent we could impose energy sanctions on russia, understandable and effect because they rely so much but i would go one more step and say by 2020 we are expected to be the world's leading producer of energy and there's talk about exporting natural gas, we need to make it clear we need to start planning for the long game and we will have natural gas with allies that reliance on russian gas to be accountable. stuart: it is all about energy, isn't it? a lot of europe is supplied with natural gas, a lot of that comes through ukraine and from russia. therefore, there is a limit to a and forbid its natural gas to get into europe. the europeans will never look at that. stuart: we have to take into account the effect this will have on their economy, doing things that will affect their allies may not be beneficial but if the president came out today, he won't but if he came out today and said we are an energy powerhouse we are committing that in ten years we have great contract with our allies that would scare the russians. vladimir putin does things with long hall and he knows is only play i
whether we're going to have an honest reality-based debate about the cost of our energy policies. and look, those costs can get pretty ugly. unsightly water towers. fracking wells. strange smells. and the kind of air and noise pollution that just about anyone would avoid if they could afford it. that's what the listee family lives with. they run an organic farm on the edge of the eagle ford shale, a strip of oil and gas extraction that stretches from south to eastern texas but they, well, no surprise, don't have the money or lawyers or connections of exxonmobil ceo and they have to live with those costs. >> it just makes constant noise. day have bright lights on all night long. and that one was completed last summer. it flared nonstop for a year. >> we're standing on the road. we own that kind of the road. this is the neighbor's where they're doing a massive frack job. you can hear the noise. loud. really echos late at night. that flame is always going. we don't feel safe having cattle or anything right here. >> there you see the other side of the tracks. and i think that's why our debate
. we see an energy prices up. so we see an uptick for brent. point when these oil prices continue to uptick. it will get to a point where people will start thinking about inflation. perhaps what it could mean for growth ahead. for gold, one point three percent, we are now at $1343. a $150 gain so far. north korea, when that happens, we usually get an uptick along the south korean defense plays. naver corp, two percent down after gains last week. i will be back later on. john, back to you. j.crewican fashion has -- has friends in very hype very high places. and may have a new owner. >> that is the country trading in the japanese trading session. they may acquire j.crew for a deal valued at the $5 billion. really looking to make inroads in the u.s. unwilling to grow and expand overseas. they want to be the world's largest clothing retailer. so they are betting on scoop-neck tees and cardigans. the bigs fan is michelle obama the united states. she loves them. i love -- i wear some j.crew j.crew -- i wear some clothing. it is hard to buy it here. leonard green has been the guy behind
television service. number three is fuel energy. fuel cell, which reports earnings on march 10, is one of the most overbought stocks. >> i am talking cars. the auto-parts retailer reporting in nine percent increase as well as sales growth of four percent. severe winter weather actually helps sales by accelerating demand area >> number one is radioshack. shares plunged more than 25% after the electronics chain announced plans to close up to 1100 stores in the u.s., or 20% of its footprint. radioshack also reported a significantly wider loss for the fourth quarter. are also keeping our eyes on shares of smith and west. the gunmaker reporting earnings after the close today. a bumpy ride for alix steel, and paul barrett joins us from washington. on god's.t with you we saw them take off in 2013 under the threat of more regulation. what is happening, why this decline now? >> there has not been any kind of tragedies. if you take a look at federal background check which analysts say can be a relatively good barometer for sales, they tend to increase we see some kind of national shooting. auror
to be placed on russia economically. they are an energy export dependent economy. once that we can do is to open up our export of liquefied natural gas. it will have a huge impact on the price and that russia enjoys in their monopoly dominated europe. i have a bill that would have expanded the gas exports to nato. dropping a bill today that will expanded even further. entering this in the national market and economically impact russia. neil: at the very least we should re-examine our opposition to drafting and some states. that is just more energy for us and the one thing that i'm curious about is it's precisely that energy independence. we need a lot of energy coming via russia and the ukraine. so don't think that. >> it certainly is an issue. they are, as you describe, being economically impacted by some very old things. this president needs to step it up and in that weakness, russia will be adventurous spirit even if they are and they start feeling the pain of their own stupidity or bullying, maybe that is what gives them cause in the future and tyrants who might think about doing
forward an energy plan that shows how we can move out of this. i fault them as well. no government has been willing to stand up to these powerful interests. and that's why people are confus confused. many people, most people in america know climate is changing, most of those who say that know that it's human caused. i think that most of the debate is about the science is a pseudodebate. what we don't have is a real debate about how to change the energy system right now. >> but let me ask you on that, note, bill. because the president, i mean, first of all, it's not just america. we need an international quorum for action. >> that's correct. >> 7 of the 200-plus countries account for -- china is the biggest emitter of greenhouse gases. india is right up there. they have not been particularly forward leaning on this issue in terms of gathering international action on it. so what -- internationally what should be done to increase, i think, the sort of buy-in, if you will from other countries and then i want to ask you as a follow-up after you answer that, how do you grade the president's
and energy that that private company has brought to the afghan media scene -- more about that in a minute. they are not the only ones. there are something like 75 television stations and 175 radio stations. either normal sleeve vigorous, varied conversation going on on the airways and in afghanistan. largest but be the it is one of many. that is a notable piece of media landscape. the third thing is as an embassy thecial i went around country and often visited tiny in villages and small towns around afghanistan. there are a lot of them. going to a one-room fm station and a small town but does not have to much going for it and you find young people at the microphone finding some way to get a little bit and music on with a basic tape recorder. in many cases the stations were help ofby locals with ngos, which is resented by some of interviews. while they run some local -- ent, maybe have another green shoot and a strong one, an important one. a varied source of strength for afghanistan going forward. we are here in this panel to discuss what i think is one of the most important advances over
goes up. i will stay stock specific and oil names like encan ma and new star energy. i take off a lot of risk across the board. go back to my screen and take some risk off going into this situation on friday. melissa: don't move. i want to get some more reaction from you in just a moment. >> budget i sent congress this morning lays out how we'll implement this agenda in a balanced and responsible way. it's a road map for creating jobs with good wages and expanding opportunity for all americans. melissa: so the president released his budget proposal today. his direction is clear. he wants to tighten guidelines for the rich. extend tax breaks for the poor and help students with loans and raise the minimum wage to 10 person $10 an hour. thanks for joining us. -- $10.10 an hour. >> thanks, melissa. melissa: what do you like about what you heard? >> most republicans and democrats agree the earned income tax credit actually works. i think that is positive. some of the ideas on infrastructure were way behind. we're hopelessly behind on infrastructure spending in this country. we'll have to d
about sempra energy? you know i like these good conservative companies. shocker? i don't think so. seventh, ebay! what can i say? we have been red hot on this country ever since carl eicahn got involved. when we've seen the corporate breakups in the past, they've made us a ton of money. whitewave broke off of dean foods. a national food company is going to be able to be on a stand-alone basis more effective than a combined company that has just gotten milk and focused natural foods. i think acahn is right. ebay should split up, too. we know value and breakups work. this is the gift that keeps on giving. thank you carl icahn. and verizon. now that the deal allowing verizon to buy the rest of verizon wireless closed, all the brokers are piling in, praising it and both jpmorgan and morgan stanley today. i know expressed frustration because i like the deal so much. just when you start to get maximum frustration is when things get real interesting. verizon could be a core holding for any portfolio. it remains the stock i shout back at people when they shout back at me, jim, booyah, wha
issues. this is the energy department's largest clean up anywhere in the united states. trying to take those 56 million-gallons of radioactive sludge that were in underground tanks. they are trying to turn that into solid glass. it is a massive project. how does this work? >> well the 17 self-tanks are distributed over quite a few square miles with an intricate net of pumps and pipes. when it is pumped to facility that i was previously supporting, we would then treat that waste chemically to get some of the more dangerous constituents out of it and then after we had treated it chemically we would put it into a melter with glass heat it up to high temperatures. >> the tanks that were underground were beginning to leak. they were old and the danger was some of them were fairly close to the colombia river and there is fear that somehow some of that radioactive material could get into the river. >> it is a fear based on reality. the single shell tanks which were actually decommissioned in the 40s and 50s, those tanks are known to have been leaking into the environment for years. we have co
